State Police prepared for Thursday night Razorback game in Little Rock

Posted By on Tue, Aug 29, 2017 at 2:29 PM

The Razorback football game Thursday night at War Memorial Stadium will mean changes to traffic patterns around the stadium.

The State Police released this traffic plan today:

Beginning at 3 PM Thursday (August 31st) troopers will implement game day changes at major intersections in the vicinity of War Memorial Stadium along Interstate 630.

Traffic will be blocked from entering the westbound on-ramp of I-630 at the Pine/Cedar interchange. Pine and Cedar Streets (north) will be used by drivers exiting I-630 to access stadium or nearby parking.

The northern-most lane of I-630 westbound from Pine/Cedar west to Fair Park will be restricted for use by traffic destined for stadium area parking only.

The westbound eastbound exit ramp from I-630 onto Fair Park will be closed.

While no changes in traffic routes are planned for I-30 or I-430, motorists should expect traffic volume to be at, or near capacity.

East and westbound traffic along Markham Street between downtown and Rodney Parham Road is expected to be particularly impacted during the rush hour as business and government employees leave work. Motorists who do not plan to attend the game are encouraged to find alternate routes traveling north or south of their usual routes of travel.

The Razorbacks play Florida A&M. Given the quality of the opposition and the chance of rain, the crowd may not be that large. Health Department employees have been told they can't use their customary parking places Thursday and the agency will close early on account of the game.
